A few years ago, the concept of online shopping was introduced, causing some foreseeable skepticism among people. Now, Walmart plans to use AI to create the perfect shopping assistance, yet another example of how AI enters an individual’s everyday life.
Walmart plans to revolutionize shopping experiences with three main features: AI-powered shopping assistance, a generative AI search bar, and an interior design tool.
With this upcoming shopping assistance, customers will have a more interactive shopping experience. The AI can answer questions, recommend products tailored to individual needs, and give details about specific items.
Generative AI actuates Walmart’s search bar tool, which helps customers by answering their specific sets of questions. Walmart’s search tool grasps what a shopper is looking for and displays an array of items that match the query.
Walmart is also incorporating augmented reality technology (AR) to create interior design assistance that will help users decorate their homes. To get started, a user needs to upload a photo of their rooms, and the AI will capture the images of all the items within the space. Customers can then chat with the virtual assistant to seek advice on redesigning their room. Thanks to its spatial understanding, the AI proposes where to place new items in the room.
